TROY, Mich. (AP) — A suburban Detroit police department is giving another cat a chance to take the law into her own paws.

A kitten named “Pawfficer Donut” was sworn in Friday by a judge, a day after a cat named Badges was removed from the Troy Police Department due to a serious illness.

Donut will be used for therapeutic purposes and public appearances. Troy police say Badges will always be considered the department’s first “pawfficer.”

Troy police pledged to add a cat if it could reach 10,000 Twitter followers by April. It took just eight days to go from 4,000 to 10,000.
